Bleeding Heart has gone back to its roots and re-opened it’s famous Basement Wine Bar which popped its first cork in 1983 when the house claret was 95 p a glass, and Champagne was 3.95 - and there was a Concret Grand Piano in the corner.
The Wine Bar is now on the ground floor of the Bleeding Heart Tavern on the corner of the Yard and Greville Street , and offers a much more extensive wine and food offering .
There are 25 wines by the glass, 400 by the bottle and a re- charged Rotisserie with a regularly changing repertoire of British Birds and Beasts, plus an a la carte menu from Phil Cooper who arrives after years as Marco’s right hand man behind the stoves.
The Wine Bar is currently open Monday to Friday 11.30 am to 11 pm but in the Spring we’ll be offering a Champagne Brunch on Saturdays for those wanting to celebrate after successfully perusing the Hatton Garden jewellery stores.

    The food and service is always spot on. This visit was a business lunch turned leaving do so the wine and cocktail bill was larger than the food bill ;) very reasonably priced for London. Thanks as always to the team for looking after us.

    It didn't help that I thought I'd booked the Bistro! However, the welcome was warm and the service great. The wine bar was very quiet - just 2 tables occupied and 1 of those was a solo diner, so very little atmosphere. The food was good and value for money; drinks though seemed on the pricey side. I can imagine that when the place is busier, the atmosphere would be great

    Thoroughly enjoyable lunch. Fish and chips were ok. Chips, peas and tartare sauce lovely. Fish a little lacking. But what was lacking in that particular main was made up for in atmosphere, service value etc. My friend I believe enjoyed the pork. Will certainly be back soon just picking a different dish of which all looked enticing.

    A wonderful business lunch with wonderful food, drink and service. We needed a bit of a break between starters and the main to talk business and the staff happily accommodated. I would give five stars but one of our desserts was a little overdone. Otherwise it was excellent.

    First visit and our party of four all enjoyed their meal. Steak was cooked rare perfectly, hake and sole were delicious and although son was a bit worried about tomato pudding with his chicken declared it amazing! For me my dish was a little too salty but of course personal preference. The service was good and Will try the bistro next time.

    This is wine bar dining that cannot be beaten. The food is beautifully cooked. The service is impeccable - friendly, attentive yet professional. I was disappointed that I could not book the Bleeding Heart bistro, as fully booked. I shouldn't have been. The wine bar was just as good. Many thanks for a great lunch.

    When a restaurant can’t even be bothered to have a playlist that doesn’t feature adverts every 3 songs on valentines evening you know you’ve made the wrong choice. Service was stressy and devoid of any care or personality. The food was average at best, with lots of parts missing from the set menu. The room we were put in involved walking past the kitchen with huge piles of dirty dishes, it felt like an after thought, was depressing in decor and the lighting made it feel like an airport lounge - way too bright.
